-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th

that when it comes to his character and his convictions and his heart, barack obama is still the same man i fell in love with all those years ago. he is the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs and instead of working and struggling -- in struggling neighborhoods where steel plant shutdown, fighting to rebuild communities and get folks back to work. because for barack, success is not about how much money you make. it is about the different to make in people's lives. -- the diffrence you make in people's lives. he is the same man when our girls were first born with anxiously checked their cribs every few minutes to ensure they were still breathing, proudly showing them off to everyone we knew. you see, that is the man who sit down with me and our girls for dinner nearly every night, patiently answering questions about issues in the news, strategizing about middle school french ships -- friendships. that is the man i see in this quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him. the latter are the father struggling to p

to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
showed the world the truth promise of america when we elected president barack obama. [cheers and applause] and years ago, a man inspired by president obama's election decided to come forward. he came to our washington office and said, i'm one of the people who beat you. i want to apologize. will you forgive me? i said i accept your apology. he started crying. [applause] he gave me a hug. i hugged him back. we botyh starte -- we both started crying. this man and i don't want to go back. we don't want to go back. [cheers and applause] brothers and sisters, do you wanna go back? >> no! >> or do you want to keep america moving forward? >> yes! >> my dear friends, your vote is precious, almost sacred. it is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have to create a more perfect union. [cheers and applause] not too long ago, people had to pass -- pay a toll tax. a man was asked to carry the number of bubbles in a bar of soap. one was asked to count the -- all to keep them from casting their ballots. today, it is unbelievable that there are republican officials trying to stop some people
washington university, showing president obama with a slight edge. governor romney was leading in may. now the latest poll shows president obama up with 50%. some other tidbits about this poll. it says -- obama leads from the on the issues of handling the economy, foreign policy, taxes, medicare, and standing up for the middle class. but romney leaves on better handling of the federal budget and spending. 38% of voters surveyed said the presidential debates are not an important factor in their vote and 84% said that they would not consider voting for another candidate. your top issues. we want to hear from romney and obama supporters and undecided voters. scott is up first in texas. caller: i believe romney will win with a landslide. the economy, gas prices, for and policy, the debt. the obama administration has been a total failure. i don't know what else we should have expected from the least qualified individual to ever hold office. host: what qualifies mitt romney for the presidency? caller: his entire life. he is one of the most compassionate, caring individuals. he is not the narciss
